Funny, actually.

Here we have Governor Rick Perry taking essentially the same position as rancher Bundy. 

'We've enjoyed the use of these lands since the Land Rush, Davey Crockett and the Alamo!  WTF is your hurry and sudden interest in physically taking possession after all these hundreds of years?  GFY!'

This Bundy thing is shaping up to be another one of those Terri Schiavo moments for me.

"Funny" is one way to put it.  A reason to reconsider him as presidential timber is another way to put it.

Depends on how this plays out.  Bundy is clearly in the wrong, but marshalling up a swarm of 200 federal agents, all armed to the teeth, to go after one old man looks like overkill to 90% of Americans.  Harry Reid's buddy who now runs BLM screwed up his first major test.  Now the BLM is on defense and the antennae of lots of people are up when the BLM decides to show up somewhere.

This is reminiscent of the massive firepower employed against David Koresh down in Waco, when the local sheriff said he could have taken him at any time when he came into town.

Federal agencies have their own paramilitary units now, and they tend to want to use them.  That should scare the hell out of everybody.

I don't disagree, but a good leader should show enough discretion and good judgment to not tie himself too closely to actions that are clearly illegal.  In other words, one doesn't have to sound like Bundy in order to hammer the democrats for the fascist way they've been running the federal government as well as the neck-deep corruption of the democrat party leadership in Congress.

Is a Governor of a State the size of Texas carrying through on his  "promise" to take on the BLM a reason to call for Martial Law?

Greg Abbott and Rick Perry are EXACTLY right on this and anyone who says otherwise just plain doesn't know what they are talking about!

If the words 'Private property" and "Rule of Law" have any meaning in this country anymore it is!

Just so I get this right.

Rick Perry rejects the idea of the Federal government enforcing Federal laws and embraces the breaking of Federal laws by illegal aliens.

Rick Perry wants to be President.

Isn't that President we have in the White House now?

He sided with Cliven Bundy, something not even Nevada's Republican Governor or the conservative board of Directors of the Nevada Cattleman's Association has done, and he thinks that entering and remaining in the land illegally is an act of love.

I'm not seeing a dime's worth of difference between Perry, and Obama... from Barry's mother's side of the family obviously.

At least Rick Perry is an unabashed Capitalist!   Exactly what this country needs.   It'll be like taking a shower after wading in pig sh*t for 8 years.

Well I side with Cliven Bundy as well so, by extension, I suppose that means you can't tell the difference between me and Obama either!

What we're obviously not 'seeing' here is that Rick Perry has drawn HIS red line.

If he makes good on it, the American voter will eat it up.

About right.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

That's what I thought.

It IS a novel idea however.

A guy who is willing to beat his chest in public and openly disrespect the structure and authority of the Federal government, is going to try and make the argument that he is the individual best suited to run the Federal government.

And so were every square inch of every state formed from land acquired via the Louisiana Purchase owned by the federal government before they became states yet there is little federal land in any of those states today. Are all states created equal or are some states created more equal than others?

The Texas situation is an entirely different matter.

Do you believe in State's rights or not?

Because if you do, then you have to believe in the right of the state of Nevada to write their constitution the way they wrote their constitution.
